Project Runway Season 7 will be premiering January 14, mere weeks after the Season Finale of Season 6.Â I can’t imagine that this brief reprieve has been NEARLY enough time for the producers and main players to reflect on the trainwreck that was Season 6, and create a plan of action to make sure this season doesn’t, well…Â Suck.
My hope is that this time around, the judges will have something more than a VERY short term memory.Â If a designer wins, wins, wins challenges- WHY would you pitch them out after making a slightly less than sexy costume?Â I’ll be blunt and say that I have absolutely no use for Nina Garcia, after reading page after page of Nina-dubbed “affordable finds” that feature $1,000 monogrammed handkerchiefs, and other such BS.Â I’ll never forgive her for suggesting that every woman should own a wardrobe of watches.Â I’d love to give her a reality check…Â Or a few swift kicks to the perfectly-coiffed head.Â Just sayin’.
Want to know a secret?Â Even though I’ve watched EVERY episode of Project Runway (Season 1 – 5) at least three times, I didn’t even watch the finale of Season 6.Â The down-home trailer trash appeal of Althea was utterly lost on me, Irina was just too much of a bitch to root for, and Carol Hannah didn’t even vaguely intrigue me.Â I would have rather seen a group of pre-schoolers craft garments out of construction paper and glitter glue to send down the runway than check out the collections from the Hot Mess Express that was the Final 3.
Since it’s already over and done with, I should probably check my bitterness and try to dredge up some hope for Season 7.Â The designers have already been selected, and if nothing else, Heidi Klum will still be incredibly hot.Â So there’s always that.
If I do watch, I can’t tell you yet who I’ll be rooting for.Â I don’t find any of the guys aesthetically pleasing, so they better be able to make some fab dresses.Â Otherwise?Â I’m going to be the one who’s out.
